POD SPECIAL! Atalanta, La Dea, The Goddess. They are a historically mid-table team, but have a knack for also being giant-killers, taking down the big names of Italian calcio. They’ve recently had big runs in Europa, to the delight of all fans who love an underdog story. The Atalanta fan base continues to grow globally, from their home of Bergamo in northern Italy, to England, and even in our own Sin City here in the US - Las Vegas! This was a really fun episode, where we discuss "The Tank Story," Rocky Balboa, and a new podcast - Atalanta Now!
A dark cloud hangs over and exciting weekend for all CurvAmericans, following the tragedy of Genoa’s bridge collapse.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s much anticipated Juve debut is almost spoiled by the Geriatric Donkeys. Napoli and OTFR go toe-to-toe in Week one’s Game of the Week. Roma get a moment of brilliance to put them past their former teammates in Torino. And, finally, Inter come out flat and give the season its first big upset.
